About Nancy Schön

One part of my career:
When I graduated from the Museum School, I had married Donald Schön and was pregnant with our first child. My senior sculpture was the lead piece in the graduation show at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. The sculpture was of a pregnant mother carrying a child on her shoulder.

Another part of my career:
Some years later, when I first started doing Public Art, I noticed that people from ages 2 to 92 looked at sculptures in parks rather casually, and then went on their way. Then, one day, I saw a sculpture of a child with a cat. The child was not noticed, but the cat was patted, hugged, and smiled at.
